You may recall, sometime around the great blog identity crisis of '09 that I came up with a plan. To wit: I would cease and desist my Curtis Granderson collecting and selectively sell-off my collection bit by bit to the overpaying Yankees fans that have money to burn.
However, sometime between then and now, something odd happened. First, Granderson cards stopped selling for much money. That whole "these cards can fund all my wildest collecting wishes" was quickly replaced by hesitation. I can't sell my cards for that! etc. Then, because I'm a sucker, I took advantage of some low prices and *gasp* added more Granderson cards to my collection--the very collection I vowed to eliminate.
Oh, and I've got news. I almost did it again, and again and again but, by the grace of God either lost out on my bids, or forgot about the listing or had common sense get the better of me. Suffice to say, I'm playing a dangerous game. So here's what I've decided to do.
1. Look at my Granderson Collection
2. Become a Follower of the blog (sidebar)
3. Post a Comment with your favorite Granderson card in the collection--if it doesn't have a caption, just describe it or something
Every eligible comment will be entered onto a list. The list will be randomized and TEN winners chosen. What do the winners get? A card.
But not just any card. Think of it as a draft. End up first on the list? You get to pick ANY Curtis Granderson card from my collection.
That means the 1/1s
Or the on-card refractor autographs:
Or the silks. Oh, the silks:
The first TEN people on the list, will get their choice of whatever card they want--just like a draft. After that's all done and I am forced to break up the band, so to speak, I should be able to overcome the mental barrier that has kept me from moving on the way I should.
One More Thing
Post about this contest on your blog, and you will receive a second entry into the contest.
Also, ALL COMMENTS MUST BE POSTED BY 5:00PM EASTERN TIME TODAY, AS I AM HEADING OUT OF TOWN ON BUSINESS AND WANT TO ANNOUNCE THE WINNER BEFORE I AM STUCK IN INTERNET PURGATORY.
